The Thames Path is unique, it's the only long distance path to follow a river for most of its length. It's the river that gives the Thames Path its character and makes it so interesting to walk along as it fashions the countryside that you pass through. Our challenge starts near Putney Bridge and then through leafy Kew and Richmond and then the last non-tidal lock at Teddington. It passes the Royal palace of Hampton Court, beneath Windsor Castle and on though beautiful countryside to Henley for those on the full 100km walk.
Which route is for you? You can take on the Thames Path Challenge as either a 100km
distance or take on either of the two 50km routes so you can choose which
route best suits your challenge and your goal!
